Alusonic Announces David Caraccio Hybrid Signature Bass

Bassist David Caraccio – better known as YouTube’s DavidSinRocks – has teamed up with Alusonic to create a signature bass in their Hybrid series. As part of the series, the bass is built with an alder body fitted with a gold anodized aircraft grade aluminum top.

The Alusonic David Caraccio Hybrid Signature bass also features a hard maple neck reinforced with carbon fiber rods. Its ebony fingerboard has a 12” radius and holds 24 frets. Caraccio opted for an I-Spira custom neodymium humbucker and split coil pickup configuration with a 3-way pickup selector. The bass has further tone-tweaking abilities with Bass and Treble knobs. Caraccio describes the bass’s sound as “warm, bright and articulated tone with some very responsive attacks and harmonics.” Check out his demo:

Hardware includes an Alusonic brass bridge with a quick release system, a graphite nut, and Hipshot Ultralite tuners. The bass’s aluminum theme is rounded out in the hardware’s finish as well as the pickguard.

Alusonic’s David Caraccio Hybrid Signature bass ships in a gig bag with a hex key set, a certificate of authenticity, and a lifetime warranty. It’s available for order now with a list price of approximately $2,700.

Cool! Great sound; great player. I’m still leery about aluminum body parts. Good marks for the carbon rods in the neck. Some basses (e.g., Carvin) have used these for a number of years with good results.

I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but if you’re paying almost three grand for a bass, is a hardshell case too much to ask for? Basic models sell for like $60, and I imagine the dealer cost is at most a third of that. Or is this a really, really sexy gig bag?
If Alusonic’s margins really are so tight that a hard case is prohibitively expensive, then maybe they should increase their MAP by, I dunno, $30? At this price point, I think people would be happier getting a case with their order, rather than having to make a separate purchase. Or hell, they could get all fancy and add another $60 to the price and get a form-fitted case. If I were to pay two thousand and seven hundred dollars for an instrument, I’d like something pretty solid to take care of it.
